HRC Participating in Ya Es Hora Census Action Next Week

YEH 300x250 Button 2HRC steering committees in 9 cities will be participating in ya es hora ¡Hagase Contar! Census week of action on March 22nd-27th and subsequent Census education efforts in April. ¡Hagase Contar! is a Census education campaign being organized by the ya es hora coalition and is Spanish for “Make Yourself Count!” In Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Phoenix, Denver, Boston, Chicago, and Orlando, our HRC local leaders and volunteers will be participating in community assistance forums and canvassing efforts to ensure a full Census count in hard-to-count Latino/a communities. We’re also working with an additional twenty-two of our steering committees to promote Census participation in Latino/a communities through social networking sites and other online media. Confirmed activities are listed after the jump. If you are interested in volunteering for any of these events, please contact HRC diversity coordinator Hyacinth Alvaran at hyacinth.alvaran@hrc.org and she will connect you with the appropriate contact.
